When you burn wood every 4 months u need to throw in wood from your outside wood shed Well this was our job yesterday.He fills a wheel barrow full of wood pushs it over to the hole(window) then throws it in+++

#1 Picture is the hole cut in the foundation of our house to throw the wood into the basement wood room
#2 Is me starting to pile wood on both sides of the wall it holds 7 cord but we only threw in 5 So John can have room at his work bench on the right
#3 Is John throwing in wood unto the floor for me to pile
#4 John peeking in asking me is the first row piled yet??lol
#5 The first 1/2 is almost full about 2.5 cord
#6 Finished till spring++++As i said there is still room in that section and it could of held a large row right across but men need room lol
Thanks for LQQKING++++And Sorry some pictures are sideways Hope you don't get a sore neck looking Carolyn

You do a very neat job packing that wood in. Do you get it already cut or do you also do the wood chopping? 7 cords is a lot.

We used to have one side in the basement with a pile of wood and two or three (can't remember for sure) rows deep. My first hubby and his brothers and cousin would get together and go cut down trees (had to have permits and given specific areas to go) and cut them up into logs the right size for the wood stove. We had electric heat and supplemented it with the wood. It smelled so good and was a much evener heat. I miss it.

My goodness Carolyn, what a lot of effort to transport it into the house. How are your muscles the next day? I'm glad you can keep warm with those temperatures. Cannot fathom how cold it must be, we never get those temps down under! Love Chris

I can just see all the work involved. What do poor widow women with no help do?. I trust the neighborhood helps them.

yes they do we help or sale for half price or whatever they can afford but most use oil and are on equal billing per month per year+++

Wow! Good job. Bet you'll have some sore muscles tomorrow. We used to have a wood stove. My hubby still misses it 12 years later. It was not our total heat source, or got as cold as your winters, so never needed that much wood! :0)

Even today we call it nice but it is -14 to -20

Gosh what a lot of work you two did to restock. I am guessing when the weather turns nice again then you have to gather wood and restock the outside shed again ready for next winter.

Brings back memories. My brother heats his house using pellets for his stove.

by lilylady 03 Feb 2019

LOL! When I had wood heat my house was so toasty warm. I do miss it, but couldn't do it by myself. Enjoy the extra work. Hope you warmed up like we did. 25 degrees yesterday
